NASW-NYS Partners with Beacon Health Options

NASW-NYS is thrilled to partner with Beacon Health Options to examine and improve the relationship between NYS Chapter providers and their insurance company. This partnership will connect our members directly with Beacon staff to review their contracts and troubleshoot issues through a streamlined process. Beacon Health Options is a leading behavioral health services company that serves one out of six people across all 50 states, with many social work providers in New York.
In June 2022, NYS Chapter members had exclusive access to a meeting with the CEO of Beacon Health Options, Glenn MacFarlane. Mr. MacFarlane and his team solved problems in real time and followed through with solutions for specific circumstances that were discussed in the meeting. In a continued commitment to improve quality of service for more NYS Chapter members, we are collecting information to be shared with Beacon Health Options. With this information, the Beacon team will connect directly with members about their concerns, review their contract and problem solve to improve services.
